A 'Treasure Trove' of Disney favorites on ice
(Page 4 of 4)
Simba and Nala and their friends join in the Circle of Life in a dramatic sequence from “The Lion King.”
Excerpts from Disney’s newest films – “Tangled” and “Princess and the Frog” – are also represented in this production. These recent additions to the Disney catalog serve as a lead-in to the grand finale, which showcases nine favorite princesses and princes. This captivating parade includes Aurora, Belle, Mulan, and Cinderella in an extravagant finale, full of pyrotechnics, which brings this adventure to a close.
“It is an amazing show with great characters and so much energy and exciting skating,” Vincent said, of her seventh directorial stint. It’s so much fun to see so many characters. I am so proud to be involved with this show.” Vincent, who was a skater with Disney on Ice, has been directing the shows since 2001.
“I love the contrast between the very first animated Disney treasure (“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”) and the most recent, (“Tangled”),” Vincent said. “I went back to the archives to re-watch “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” so that I could appreciate the fact that we’re going from the 1930s to today in one production. It’s amazing to see where we came from and where we are now, not only with the animation but also with the storytelling.”
